Autodesk: Your Autodesk Account


Your Autodesk account is your key to accessing software from Autodesk; the account that you create now will be used throughout your time at Mohawk, and can even be used after you graduate. The process has been broken down into three steps:

  1. Create your Autodesk account
  2. Obtain your Autodesk Educational License (every year until you graduate)
  3. Download and install your Autodesk software
